Compassion in Action
Providing clothing, food, and other necessities to indigent children and families in our communities.
Compassion in Action is a a nonprofit arm of Life Strategies Counseling, Inc. We have been serving families since 2006.
What We Do
Compassion in Action offers turkeys to families struggling to keep food on the table during the holidays.
We also give toys, clothing, shoes, and food to families during the holidays to ensure all will have a Merry Christmas.
Our Glass Slipper program has provided over 600 prom dresses to young ladies who are unable to purchase or rent one on their own. We also give away tuxedos to young men in our communities that would otherwise have to go without attending their prom.
Compassion in Action donates clothing, mattresses, bed frames, baby beds, cribs, school supplies, toys, and more to families truly in need. We also are able to help with utility bills for those at risk of getting utilities turned off.
This can all be done through the generous donations of local business and private donors.
How We Started
The idea was developed when a child who was in services with LSCI desperately needed a surgical procedure to correct a physical deformity. The child's family had no funds to care for it. After phone calls to area agencies and other organizations produced little success, the idea for a non-profit organization to assist children victimized by nature and social circumstances was put into action.
How Are We Funded?
By our family of LSCI employees! Life Strategies Counseling employees have the option to donate directly from their paychecks weekly. LSCI also donates the administrative costs of Compassion in Action. Therefore, 100% of donations are used toward the needs that are carefully screened by our leadership team.
